Reducing our ecological footprint

The children have amazed us with the actions that they have chosen for the whole school to undertake as part of our #changemakers project. Here are some of them...

1. Ensure that our lunchtimes are more eco-friendly by recycling our school lunch boxes and eliminating the use of disposable cutlery. We bought reusable cutlery and made arrangements for the 'eat out' lunch boxes to be recycled during school closures.

2. Plant more trees. Mr Garner managed to sort us 90 new trees and the children panted them on the school grounds to stop car pollution from the nearby Dual Carriageway.

3. Reduce the litter around school and our village. We now have Eco-Warrior clean up groups who regularly go into the village to tackle litter, protect our wildlife and ensure our community looks nice.

4. Walk to school more. In sunny months, we run a whole school competition to see which class walks to school the most often, with weekly prizes.

The children learn about changes that we can all make at home to reduce our ecological footprints. We would love to hear about some of the changes your family makes by sharing your photos on social media, tagging the school and using #changemakers to draw our attention to it.

Let's change the world!
